Teacher introduction

I am a friendly, professional person who likes to travel and spend time with people from different cultures. I am an experienced English teacher and I enjoy helping students develop their language skills and giving them an opportunity to find out about British culture as they study. I have taught English in my home, in schools and outside the UK in Spain and in India. My career was London based working as a senior manager in housing strategy and policy. I also have a background in training and management consultancy. In recent years I have continued to specialise in English teaching but also spent a period of time learning to be a professional cook and enjoy to share my cooking skills too.
Teacher qualifications text
I went to the University of Sussex and have a degree in social science and a management qualification and a certificate to teach adult learners. I have English teaching qualifications having passed my CELTA in 2004. I have a Trinity TESOL certificate which I passed in 2015.
Teacher family
I have two adult sons and both of them work in education. My son Joe works in a specialist school in London and his girlfriend works for a large London based audit company. My other son Tim is a science teacher and is married to an English teacher and they have two energetic daughters aged four and one year old. My sons enjoy all sports and I see them both regularly as they both live in the South East. I come from quite a small family and have a sister who lives in Wales and a brother who has lived in Australia since 1980.
Teacher hobbies and interests
I love to read and I go to see films and go to the theatre as much as I can. I am very interested in food, nutrition and cooking and in 2017 I spent three months living in rural Ireland learning to be a professional cook. I enjoy sharing my interest in food and helping people learn to cook.
